    I know clothing is a users preference but the best tights I found to run in are from N2Nbodywear.com. Snug, low-rise, comfortable and I don't have to put on an extra layer of underwear or thong. Anybody found any other that are supportive and equally comfortable?

    Sporthill... Not supportive, but warm if you train in cold weather.

    And after a certain age, I no longer attempt lycra - at least in public! icon_confused.gif

    A true "runner" wouldn't run in something "snug" and "low-rise." It's not functional for the sport.

    Can I get an "AMEN!" gymguy1?? icon_biggrin.gif

    Have you tried Under Armour tights? Apparently they're great.

    N2N tights look like the completely opposite of functional.

    Btw I love seeing runners running around in tights. icon_twisted.gif

    If you're going to go with ridiculous tights, why not just get these?

    I bought a pair to try, they are a bit too long but do seem to help with muscle fatigue and knee aches afterwards. I wear a pair of warm-up pants over them, though. I'm not going to be seen in just the tights.

    I didn't think anything from N2N was meant to actually be used for the 'stated' purpose. I thought they were just the latest in sublte fetish underwear and fashion.

    If I run in tights, it's under a pair of shorts. My business does not need to be out like that in midwinter!

    yea my butt would be hanging out of those too. low rise is just a bad idea for running gear. if you're gonna go with tight i definitely recommend ua or nike pro.

    I run in underarmor tights, and i have recently discovered the value of compression tights. they really help with the fatigue.

    I don't think there is a style of runner's gear that could hold Sean's ass. It is a wonder to behold. icon_eek.gif

    I usually run/work out in NIke Pro Compression shorts with regular Under Armor shorts on top of those:

    Would someone seriously run in just those tights? You wouldn't wear shorts or something over them?

    i anustralia we have a brand called "skins" they are a tights compression garment like under armour (too expensive here)

    they are popular!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT if you wear the pants...it dosent matter how much you think every one wants to see your bulge..wear shorts over them! Its obscene.

    I have a pair of the N2N Ultra Skin Runner tights (see my pix) and yes I've run in them. First off, they are ok as running tights but not really functional. Like I said, I've run in them, but since they are very low rise every step you take they lower exposing the top of your butt crack. I always wear a shirt to cover that up. As far as the support goes they are ok and do the job at keeping your legs warm with a slight compression. But you run the risk of exposing yourself wearing them unless you really tighten them with the string.

    Second, I have the Under Armour tight also. These are very good. Very good compression. I wear them a lot. Both in the winter and the cool in the summer. I always wear tight to run in as long as the temp is below 70 degrees. With these, if the weather is nice I don't wear a shirt.

    The BEST that I've found is http://www.cw-x.com/ These are real tights made with compression and added support in mind. I got the two pair. They cost a lot more then Under Armour but I like them. These have a particular science behind their design. So you might enjoy them.

    how can you run with such low waist tights? lol
    and to flaunt my family jewels like that?

    but i do like my CW-X tights. Bit pricey but oh, the support is fantastic.
    The first time i put them on i thought,"wtf!?" because of the firmness .
    But after that there was no going back.

    I can vouch for this.... I own them in RED!!! They're hot. Everyone I see loves them.. Low rise but still covers the ass. When I say covers the ass I mean just enough... I don't have a big booty though.

    When I bend over. you can see some ass though.
    Oh, well I like em.

    Here's me, just before a long morning run in the cold weather:

    The compression shirt and tights (both Under Armour) allow for complete movement while keeping me warm. I'm a big fan.
